Great historic hotel part of the Hilton family. Wonderful staff and service. Directly across from the Alamo. Easy walk to the River Walk and River Center. Unique hotel design. Very enjoyable getaway. Famous DoubleTreee cookies upon arrival.

There is not enough space in the review to speak to how The Emily Morgan exceeded our expectations. I have stayed at dozens of hotels around the state and this property, by far, is the best. A wonderful experiance!

My Mom and I visited San Antonio for a night and decided to stay at the Emily Morgan Hotel. We are very happy we made that decision. We had a beautiful view of the Alamo and city. We didn't realize when we booked the hotel that it was right next door to the Alamo, very convenient. It's also a short walk to the Riverwalk, which is nice to explore with many restaurants and sights to see. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. We ended up needing a refrigerator in our room and they had one delivered right away with no issue. They also suggested places for us to visit and answered any questions we had. There is a restaurant in the hotel, we had breakfast there and it was very good. Also, a very clean hotel!

If you are bored with traditional hotel rooms, stay here! Literally right next door to the Alamo and within walking distance to the mall, restaurants, stores, wax museum, etc. The hotel parking is valet only and is a bit costly, but the wifi is free so it averages out, plus you can get a good deal on a room. You won't be disappointed. The larger room is better, but the smaller room was great. Old Texas theme throughout. Very comfortable bed/linens/blanket. Clean room. A/C was COLD. The thermostat didn't work great in our room..or you might say it worked too good, lol! Hotel had a library room that was nice to meet up in w/ others before going out. And the warm chocolate chip cookies at check-in are wonderful! Staff was very nice.

Room Tip: The 2 bed queen rooms have the view of the Alamo. Pool is just ok.

My kids & I stayed for two nights and it was a great experience! The room was extremely clean, the location was perfect (within walking distance of the Riverwalk) and the staff was attentive. Breakfast was excellent and very convenient. It was worth the price.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Our hot water wasn't working properly and they immediately upgraded us to a better room. Stayed as this hotel while moving cross country and they accommodated our parking situation (car being towed on trailer)
Dog friendly and everyone we encountered was great to deal with
